An East Hampton man who was duck hunting was found dead on Monday night in the snow near Sammy’s Beach in East Hampton.

According to East Hampton Town Police, 73-year-old Vincent D’Angelo had been trying to free his vehicle, which had become stuck in a snowdrift on the beach access road to Sammy’s Beach.
